After the recent heavy storms, most of the cherry blossoms have been swept away, leaving only a few resilient trees in protected spots that still radiate their breathtaking beauty—albeit not quite matching the splendor captured in the displayed photo. You can find more cherry blossom photos on my gallery page.
Unfortunately, circumstances prevented me from attending this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. Despite my desire to go, various obstacles, including the havoc wreaked by the storms, ultimately hindered my plans. Fortunately, there is always next year, patiently awaiting another opportunity to partake in this cherished event.
